Re: The Lens You Wish Nikon Made

How about a 70-180mm f4.5-5.6 AF-S micro (maybe even with VR) keeping the ability of the effective aperture to not change even with close focusing, unlike other macro lenses? A constant aperture while zooming would also be nice but may not be possible while keeping the effective aperture even with close focusing.

Actually I'd prefer it maintain a better working distance like the Vivitar Series 1 90-180mm f4.5 flatfield macro zoom. It have about twice the working distance as the Vivitar at the same magnifications.
